In the 1st event which started everything, it was completely unplanned and a unexpected move to make. One of the creators, Craig Payne from Melbournein Australia found himself in England, UK for 2 days whilst on the way back home from conferences in Spain and Portugal with not much to do. Whilst there he dropped in at Ian Griffith’s home and whilst chatting after dinner they discovered none of them had actually streamed a Facebook Live so they decided to have a go and find out what happens. They did a Facebook Live conversation from Ian’s home. Regardless of the really “amateur” and thoroughly “unrehearsed” nature of the live stream, it was met with amazingly positive comments and they got some deep thinking requests through the livestream. So they started wondering if there is some mileage in doing something like this more frequently. And therefore a regular show was given birth to to in due course be known as, PodChatLive. In this PodChatLive, Craig shares about and reveals which has been the research paper that modified his beliefs the most, plus they talk about junk science, pseudoscience, research translation. Other subjects come up were concerns on what is inappropriate with cuboid syndrome – we all know it whenever we view it, but its hard to define. In addition, they talked about Craig’s preferred international airport to have breakfast at.
